    Heres removal tips from Symantec

    Additional information:

    Once this type of Trojan attacks a computer, it is difficult to determine what else the computer has been exposed to.

    In most cases, any changes—other than those that the Trojan made—will not have occurred. However, the Trojan's creator may have been able to use the Trojan to access the computer to make changes to it.

    Unless you can be absolutely sure that malicious activity has not been performed on the computer, we recommend completely re-installing the operating system.
    You'll just have to be that bit more careful in the future...
